It seems simple. Do you want to have a good relationship with Christ? Then read the Bible and pray. And be disciplined about it.
It's much more important that men do something that works than that they do things a certain way. How can a man know if what he is doing to stay connected with Christ is working? Here are a few questions to ask on a weekly basis:
If the answers to these questions are yes, then you have an effective devotional life. Maybe it is listening to scripture while you exercise, or praying after parking the car at work, or reading a short passage at lunch every day--there are more ways than ever to hear God's word and stay connected. Don't give up working on the discipline to start every day with Christ--but don't feel like a failure if something else is already working for you.
You probably know a man who needs some help in this area. Why not encourage him with the goal of spending time with God rather than the means of how he is supposed to do it?
